Q and A with David Suzuki's Queen of Green: Part 2

Did you join me for yesterday's Q&A with David Suzuki's Queen of Green, Lindsay Coulter? Are you eagerly waiting to hear about her biggest green pet peeve? I sure am. Without further ado, here's what Lindsay had to say about green pet peeves and the one eco act you should take on. [caption id="attachment_1269" align="alignleft" width="150" caption="Lindsay Coulter in her kitchen / Photo by Brooke MacDonald"] Lindsay Coulter in her kitchen / Photo by Brooke MacDonald[/caption] CanadianLiving.com: Is going green a challenge? Lindsay Coulter: Nope. It's about quality of life, plus everybody is doing -- so get on board today! Of course, you don't need to know it all, that's what I'm here for. To stay in the loop on all things "green", subscribe to my blog, join me on Facebook or send your question to my column featured every Monday in the Metro. It’s that easy. CL: What's your biggest green pet peeve? LC: There are so many, but recently I'm onto the idea of recycling less. Sounds weird, I know. But just think about it for a second. If your blue bin spilleth over every week, maybe you need to start watching what you buy. Already a light shade of green? Maybe you want to move to a darker shade and this is a great place to start. Think about smarter consumer choices -- reduce the amount of packaging you're bringing home, the first "R" after all is REDUCE. Then, think about what you can REUSE before you throw it in the blue bin. When you can fine tune the three "Rs" at home it can bring great insight into your consumptive habits, for the better. CL: If you could urge everyone to do one green act, what would it be? LC: Eat more vegetarian meals. Only four per cent of North Americans are vegetarians. Just think, if everyone had a few more vegetarian meals a week it would go a long way to reducing our huge footprint.
